Join host Amy Zellmer of Faces of TBI as she chats with author and stroke survivor, Mark Moore.
Mark is a philanthropist and successful businessman. Along with his wife Brenda, a former nurse, Mark has established the Mark and Brenda Moore and Family Foundation, through which he supports advances in healthcare, education, culture and the arts, and Christian evangelism. Prior to engaging full time in his philanthropic work, Mark was Chief Operating Officer and co-owner of Segovia, Inc., a leading provider of global internet protocol services to the US Defense Department. Mark is also the Mid-Atlantic Ambassador for the American Stroke Association and the author of the memoir A Stroke of Faith, which is now on sale. Mark’s new memoir (FaithWords, on sale now), follows his journey from successful businessman to unexpected stroke victim and survivor.
In May 2007, Mark was hit in quick succession by two nearly fatal strokes at the age of 46 and spent a month in a medically-induced coma. Now, almost ten years later, he has made a near-full recovery due to intense rehabilitation, the expertise of caregivers, and what he calls the three Fs: family, friends, and faith. Now retired, Mark spends his days educating people about stroke prevention and awareness, sharing his inspirational story with those who have suffered strokes and other traumatic ailments, and giving back to his community.
